Boxing on ESPN+

WBO World Light Heavyweight champ Eleider Alvarez defends against Sergey Kovalev on Feb. 2, streamed live on ESPN+.

Things kick off at 10 p.m. Eastern on ESPN with Oscar Valdez taking on Carmine Tommasone for the WBO featherweight title, and Richard Commey against Isa Chaniev for the IBF lightweight title.

And the fights keep on through the night on ESPN+, with Alvarez-Kovalev (as well as the 10-round lightweight fight of Teofimo Lopez vs. Diego Magdaleno) starting right around midnight eastern time.

Alvarez and Kovalev hardly are strangers. The two fought back on Aug. 4, 2017, in Atlantic City, N.J., with Alvarez (24-0, 12 KOs) dispatching Kovalev (32-3-1, 28 KOs) with a TKO in the seventh round.

Here's a look at what when down — several times — in that 2017 fight:

The ol' rematch clause is what's brought us to Saturday's fight.
